Evan Tackett

The day I had to suffer through the first two episodes of The Problem Solverz. When I was at school on that day, I checked the reviews for The Problem Solverz on my phone, and they were all negative. After school that day, I went on my computer and watched the first two episodes of the show, and it became my worst show of all time, surpassing the record that was previously held by Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon until it was dethroned by Velma this year.

Take me back to April 15, 2011

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

The date is April 15, 2011, and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aries. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

The summer of 2011 is drawing closer, and temperatures have started to rise. In America, the song "E.T." by Katy Perry ft Kanye West is at the top of the singles charts, while "On The Floor" by Jennifer Lopez is the number-one song in the UK. Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie Hop is at the top of the box office.

David Cameron is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Smallville", "One Tree Hill", "Modern Family", and "Shameless". Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are continuing to close their doors at the moment. Sadly, it seems as though they will be unable to compete with online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.

People are using pre-made comics called "Rage Comics" to share funny and relatable experiences. It's 2011, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Adele, Maroon 5, LMFAO, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Bruno Mars. The catchphrase "Every Day I'm Shufflin'" is being repeated and parodied following the success of LMAO's song "Party Rock Anthem".

Anti-government protests are taking place in cities across Syria. A civil war is raging on in Libya. Large battles are taking place between Colonel Gaddafi's government forces and Libyan rebels, who are being supported by NATO. The recent discovery of eight bodies near Gilgo Beach in New York are raising fears about a Craigslist serial killer.

The Netherlands is in shock after a gunman kills five people in a mass shooting at the Ridderhof mall in Alphen aan den Rijn. Wrestling fans are saddened by the recent announcement that WWE superstar Edge will be retiring due to cervical spinal stenosis. A terrorist attack on the Minsk Metro in Belarus has claimed the lives of 15 people.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Randy Savage, Margo Dydek, Ryan Dunn, and Peter Falk would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Farmville", "Amnesia: The Dark Descent", "Homefront", and "Total War: Shogun 2". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Curious George", "iCarly", "The Suite Life on Deck", and "Adventure Time".

Children are playing with toys such as Playmobil Horse Farm, ZhuZhu Pets, Harumika (dolls), and Rocky the Robot Truck.
